'Phullu' is different from 'Padman': Director Abhishek Saxena
Chennai, June 7 (IANS) Actor Vikram Prabhu says he decided to don the producer's hat with upcoming Tamil actioner "Neruppuda" to avoid repeating the mistakes he committed while working in other projects so far in his career.
"I learnt a lot from my last few films. When I understood what went wrong with them, I could see the mistakes. Things went wrong in the filmmaking process and I can't have control over them if I'm not the producer," Vikram told IANS.
Hence, he decided to produce his next film "Neruppuda".
"As a producer, I didn't want to commit the same mistakes that I found in my last few films. I would have full control over my project and handle things the way I want. I play a fireman in the film and it will be a very different role," he said.
Vikram has Tamil action-thriller "Sathriyan" lined up for release this week.
He plays a gangster in the S.R. Prabhakaran directorial.
"It's a very realistic film. It's based on the lives of real gangsters in Trichy, and Prabhakaran has treated everything with realism. I was amazed by his research," he said.
The film also stars Soori and Manjima Mohan.
